I hung out at, or I lived in or near most of the towns mentioned in this thread. There's too many places for me to mention.

re: Tell's rap on Los Osos (Calif central coast) -- I lived in SLO-town. Here's a shot of me and a buddy at Pirate's Cove nude beach. We worked together as electronic techs at TRW / Vidar in San Luis Obispo.

I have taped live music and lived in Nashville (Hillbilly Jazz), Portland (taping at KOAP- TV/FM as broadcast tech), Austin (taping as broadcast engineeer - we had Lyle Lovelett live downtown for Y2K), and Denver (years of taping, producing, and telecasting bands as a broadcast engineer).

I have moved probably fifty times. It used to be you could tape in, and live in most places affordably, especially if you moved once or twice. Not any more. And, moving can be $problematic as hell nowadays.

Colorado's climate beats Portland's and New Jersey's. I live in Colorado so I can enjoy the quality outdoors lifestyle.

re: Althea's cue to me -- It is expensive to live here. There's too much "Gentrification" in Fort Collins. Another thing, Fort Collins has too much "Jerryfication".

Jazz Alley pics is a couple of blocks from Aggie Theatre pic which is a couple of blocks from Cheba Hut's logo pic. See the "Monte on Patrol" storyboard below.

I know what the word "gentrification" means, but what do you mean by "Jerryfication"?

And who painted those murals? Pretty nice, though it would be interesting to find out why painter decided to paint Jerry in a tie-dye & why (s)he decided to include President Obama & his wife in the balcony scene. I can't identify every single person in the two murals, but on first glance they appear to be the only non-musicians in the paintings, so gotta' wonder why they were included . . .

Edsel, the guy on crutches is a local Fort Collins citizen. Note that "Sonny and Cher" is actually CSU ex-coach Sonny Lubbick, and Cher. There's a lot to interpret in this mural. The artist is keeping a low profile on this one. What I know is, this mural is fairly new in town; I tracked down the artist one day; he told me one or two things about his mural; and then I produced 10 images, a one-minute video clip, and a firsthand short story about it for The Archive.

It isn't hard to imagine why BO and wife are included, but Arnold Palmer on crutches and US Grant are curious.
